Do you remember when you realized you were a caregiver?
Did it seem like it happened “in an instant”?
It can happen to us all – even celebrities, like my first guest on Saturday.
Lee Woodruff is a writer, a contributing reporter for “CBS This Morning” and a contributing editor for Working Mother magazine. She also is the wife of Bob Woodruff, the journalist who succeeded Peter Jennings as the co-anchor of ABC World News Tonight in 2005.
In January 2006, their lives changed “in an instant”, when Bob was critically injured by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq.
In an instant, Lee became caregiver for her husband with a traumatic brain injury.
My second guest is Danielle Porter, a Music Therapist from Brooks Rehabilitation’s Bartram Park campus. Danielle uses music to improve the quality of life for their residents. With her will be Danielle McGrath, Director of Marketing for Aging Services for the Bartram Campus. Together, they are helping their residents to find closer sense of community, so that they can achieve the highest level of recovery and participation in life.
